The present call is launched by EIT Food to select 1 organisation that would become organiser of a series of EIT-Food startup events in the Basque Country with the aim of making an impact in the entrepreneurship regional ecosystem by bringing together key stakeholders around selected topics with a clear focus on agrifood.
Notably, we see creative potential in the following six focus areas, giving an opportunity to appeal to different audiences from farmers to tech influencers to corporates:
- Alternative proteins
- Sustainable Agriculture
- Targeted Nutrition
- Sustainable aquaculture
- Digital transformation of traceability
- Circular food systems
We wish to organise inspiring talks relating to each of these themes. The aim of the talks is twofold:
1: To connect local entrepreneurs with EIT Food Startups while providing inspiring real life case studies of startups that have successfully developed solutions to address some
of the key challenges in our food systems.
2: To build connections in the Basque Country, inspiring local industries, entrepreneurs and investors to participate.
